Ah, I would bet anything that the glyphs change tomorrow Because today August 6th, 2007 is 4 Yaxk'in 3 Kib' on the Mayan calendar


0=o)

Edit: ah I see, I should have repeated the info I said before that.

The first glyph is Yaxk'in and the second is Kib.
The Mayan numeral on the left is 4 and 3 on the right.
Hence: 4 Yaxk'in 3 Kib'

Well, It pretty simple. Just look at the page and find the symbols for the dates.

I tried searching for anything in the thread related to:
http://blog.myspace.com/johnlrusso
which I found in a random Google.
Since I didn't find anything, I thought I should post, just in case.

It may be some completely unrelated fiction (It goes back to January of '06) but the first post about the stars kinda got me wondering.

Guess I better do the responsible thing and read up on this one.


EDIT: For those who are catching up or reading this thread from the start, I'd like to point out that as of this post on page 33 of this thread, it has been found that this site is not related to the Tom Tooman game. --Giskard

http://www.calendarhome.com/converter/
That's a date converter, Mayan is down a bit on the left.

Also Yaxk'in means "first sun" or "new sun" and Kib' (or Cib) is vulture/shell

Bah, I've searched around but can't find the same page I found the second set of glyphs on. You can see the first ones on the wiki page.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_calendar

EDIT: And I don't know whether or not that blog has to do with this, but either way it's really nifty. Shocked

Yeah, if that blog isn't this ARG it could be another.

Hmm... has anyone noticed that the lower right hand corner of the map is kind of shifted up from the rest of the pic?

EDIT: Johnlrusso is very likely in game:

Day -8- Wind

The wind is at my back as I make my way to Red Cloud.

The dust is sweeping hard in my face.

I am making a stop in Minburn, Iowa.

The faceless man told me I had too. He told me I would meet someone who would change the direction of my heart. I asked him who it was. He told me I would know her when I saw her.

Minburn, Ohio...The Small Town With A Big Heart.

I know I am going to find difficulties in my stop. But whoever I am meeting is going to be someone I need to find.

I can feel that I am close to finding out why I was chosen. And I feel that the answer lies in her heart, within the big heart of Minburn.


Iowa.
Red Cloud. This can't be coincidence. I'm gonna read this, too.

Actually, it's pretty cool.
This guy's a good writer, overall. Really poetic.

clouds on map

The smudges that look like clouds appear to coincide with major cities: Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City (and maybe Topeka, there appear to be two smudges there), Denver, Indianapolis. No Idea what kind of significance that might have.

Concentrated superstorms maybe? Some indication of badness either way, would be my guess.

Either way, I seem to want to root for Choice.

Or maybe all those cities are on fire and the smoke is visible from orbit...
